|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The transaction technical assistance (TRTA) will help the government to prepare the ensuing project as well as develop a preliminary roadmap and a long term investment program for flood risk management (FRM). The TRTA will directly complement the technical assistance loan for IPIF. More specifically, the IPIF will directly support output 2 of the ensuing project by financing the preparation of (i) six FRM master plans of six target river basins; (ii) feasibility studies; (iii) detailed engineering design of priority infrastructure; (iv) procurement; and (v) social and environmental safeguard assessments. The TRTA will (i) prepare design of the project, particularly its outputs 1 and 3; (ii) support output 2 by reviewing technical soundness of the FRM master plans, feasibility studies, detailed engineering design of priority infrastructure and due diligence conducted under the IPIF, including the 'Room for the River_ approach and nature-based solutions; and (iii) prepare a preliminary roadmap and investment program for FRM in the Philippines.|
